Tesla recalls 200,000 vehicles over backup camera glitch

Tesla found out that about 200,000 of their cars had a little glitch. It seems there’s a little hiccup with the software that’s supposed to show what’s behind the car on a screen – it’s not working as it should.

The models having this issue are the latest, the 2023 versions of Tesla’s Model S, Model X, and Model Y. But here’s the good part: Tesla has already figured out a fix! They’re sending out a software update directly to the cars, kind of like how your phone gets updates, and it won’t cost the car owners a dime. They’re also sending letters to the car owners on March 22, 2024, to tell them all about it.

Now, this isn’t a new thing for Tesla. It’s the 15th time they’ve had to call cars back in just the last year. The biggest one was in December when they had to check over 2 million cars because of something with the Autopilot feature.

Recently, Tesla shared that they’re expecting to sell fewer cars this year. They’re also watching the competition heat up, especially from a Chinese electric car company called BYD.

But Elon Musk, the head of Tesla, isn’t just sitting back. He’s got plans for an even better and more affordable electric car. We might have to wait a bit though – it’s not expected until the latter half of 2025.
